On Resilience … Problems are extracted from messes by analysis prof serious 2 hr ago 5 4 “Managers are not confronted with problems that are independent of each other, but with dynamic situations that consist of complex systems of changing problems that interact with each other. I call such situations messes. Problems are extracted from messes by analysis.” (Russell Ackoff) We have, over the last two years, confronted our lack of societal resilience. The last few weeks, with challenges in food and energy supply, have again brought this to the fore. There has been ample comment on each of these issues and I will not, you should be pleased to hear, add to it. Rather, I would like to stand back and suggest we need a different approach to thinking about resilience. I apologise that this is, necessarily, a somewhat technical discussion (prof serious, after all).
